About the Book
Singapore is known as the Garden City and over 1,300 species of plants grow in the country. Both locals and visitors alike love the beautiful flowers and lush greenery that range from colourful bougainvillea and exotic orchids to majestic palms and verdant shrubs.
Botanical Singapore pays tribute to our Garden City and award-winning artist William Sim captures our favourites in his own whimsical style. Each exquisite watercolour illustration is accompanied by short succinct text identifying the plant and its key features.
Packaged in a handy size, the book is an attractive keepsake for nature lovers and makes a great gift for travellers and art enthusiasts.
